I shouldn't rate any stars as I just had my first injection yesterday - and looked on this site to see if anyone had an adverse reaction like I did. I had surgery a year ago on my left knee and am still having pain. During the injection, I had immense pain in the back on my knee (not injection site) and the nerve pain ran up my leg into my back and down my leg into my foot. I immediately go ...

I have had surgery and gone to therapy to try to solve my knee pain. Nothing seemed to work until this. The first 2 shots were painful and hurt for a day or two. The third, barely felt anything. Although standing for more than 2 hours may cause a little discomfort for the first 2 or 3 days. It is amazing.

I have had 3 injections on my left knee. With my first injection, my knee became tolerable and able to walk better. Now that I have had my 3 injection my knee feels good, I am able to sleep much better. I have to have rt knee surgery but I am going to try the orthovisc with a brace because I am bone on bone. I will let you know the results
